China approves two more GMO crops for import, DuPont disappointedBy Dominique Patton BEIJING (Reuters) – China has approved two more genetically modified (GMO) crops for import, the Ministry of Agriculture said, the second such move in the past month to expand access to biotech seeds as part of Beijing’s 100-day trade talks with Washington. The two new crops, approved from July 16 for a period of three years, are Syngenta’s 5307 insect-resistant corn sold under the Agrisure Duracade brand and Monsanto’s 87427 glyphosate-resistant corn, sold under the Roundup Ready brand, the ministry said on its website on Monday. The move brings total approvals to four after the government last month gave the go-ahead to Dow Chemical Co’s Enlist corn and Monsanto’s Vistive Gold soybeans.
